LGBT travel to be showcased at WTM Africa in 2015

The International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association recently signed an agreement to become an association partner for World Travel Market Africa 2015, a key business-to-business exhibition for Africa’s leisure travel industry.

WTM Africa will take place in Cape Town, South Africa from April 15th-17th 2015 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.

Through this partnership, IGLTA, the leading global organization dedicated to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender tourism, would like to bring more education, awareness, and visibility to LGBT travel in Africa and help its business members better connect with the African tourism industry.

In 2016, IGLTA will hold its Annual Global Convention in Cape Town, the first time this premier educational and networking event will be held in an African city.

“Africa certainly has its challenges when it comes to LGBT issues, with many countries promoting anti-gay leglislation in recent months.


“This partnership with WTM Africa is a wonderful opportunity to provide much-needed information on LGBT travel to the African tourism industry,” IGLTA president John Tanzella argued.

“Cape Town, well-known as the oasis of gay friendliness in Africa, is a beautiful destination; we’re looking forward to engaging with WTM Africa in 2015 and carrying that relationship forward.”

WTM Africa is a must-attend business-to-business travel and tourism event that during its inaugural showcase in 2014, saw an extensive variety of top travel industry exhibitors, international buyers as well as large volumes of trade visitors and industry professionals from around the world.
